I'm modeling a car, but I don't want to add any polygons. I don't need to (I'm trying to have a nicer mesh) so I've got two separate pieces here. Unfortunately this doesn't give me the curved effect, as in the picture below.

I was thinking to fix this in a normal map, but I'm sure I've seen tools for doing this specific thing, and I just can't recall how I saw it done (whether it was in a texture map or not).

I wasn't really big on the solutions, I did find for this here.

model top, picture bottom

Here's a picture of the wireframe. enter image description here

I could model this, I just don't want to do it that way, I'm sure there's an alternate way.

  • $\begingroup$ hello, you don't give enough details, how is your mesh in wireframe mode, what part are you trying to do and can't, etc? $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ I'm afraid you have no choice but to do it with one mesh $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ @moonboots I suppose I can always make this piece a plug in MeshMachine when it comes to 2.8 youtu.be/2DpjEHxjh2s?t=61 To be honest I hadn't considered the solution when I made this post D: $\endgroup$

1 Answer 1


As it turns out I can make this piece into a 'plug' with MeshMachine and place it on my mesh with the additional smoothing in the corner modeled onto that plug.

Just waiting for the 2.8 version
